Chuco Relic and Buy El Paso present 915 Chuco Week, a week-long extravaganza with the ultimate goal of celebrating shopping local.
915 Chuco Week started on Friday, September 10, 2021, and ends on Sunday, September 19, 2021. Throughout the week, El Pasoans are encouraged to visit any of the 100 participating businesses that are offering special Chuco Week discounts and win exciting prizes – the more businesses they support, the better the odds!
“9/15 Day is like our Valentine’s,” said Chuco Relic owner Chelsie Evaldi. “We love El Paso every day, but this week is extra special. The goal is to celebrate El Paso, encourage people to try new places, support local, and more importantly, love on our city.”
Chuco Relic partnered with BBB Paso del Norte’s Buy El Paso to feature businesses in every El Paso region during 915 Chuco Week.
“When Chuco Relic asked Buy El Paso to partner in 915 Chuco Week, we were excited to share many of the local businesses who have participated with Buy El Paso,” said Marybeth Stevens, President of BBB Paso del Norte. “We wanted local businesses to be featured from all of the areas of El Paso – Upper Valley, West, Downtown, Central, Lower Valley, Northeast, East, and the Far East.” 915 Chuco Week also features online businesses who do not have a brick-and-mortar location.
To participate in 915 Chuco Week and get exclusive discounts, El Pasoans should stop by any of three Chuco Relic locations to retrieve a 915 Chuco Week booklet. Then, present the booklet at participating businesses and collect 915 Chuco Week stickers. At the end of the week, participants can take the booklet filled with stickers back to Chuco Relic Central, 3750 Gateway Blvd. East, to claim your prize!
